School is on my brain and prepping for the upcoming school year has been taking up too much of time. So, it was really nice to receive this surprise PWE from Brian yesterday.
Let's see what else the brain-trust of Highly Subjective and Completely Arbitrary sent my way.
I don't remember much about Bob Scalan other than he was a tall dude.
(The back of this '91 Topps Traded card says he was 6'7".)
Rondell White was probably the last of favorites from my odd Expos fascination.
It started with Delino DeShields, Marquis Grissom, and Larry Walker. There were a few others in there, including Mark Grudzielanek, but I think Rondell closed the chapter on that fad for me. I was really excited when he came over to the Cubs!
Elvin Tappe played in six different seasons with the Cubs and amassed just over three hundred at-bats in his career as a back-up catcher.
Me? Excellent addition to my collection and I love the rounded and fuzzy corners!
The Schwarber fills another hole in my 100 Years of Wrigley set. Nice!
Sweet non-fuzzy rounded corners on the Jake Arrieta card! That's a sharp looking card!
Lastly we have a couple of shiny Cubs... The Bryant is numbered to 2015, as all gold parallels from last year's Topps set are.
Thanks for the great cardboard respite from school work, Brian! I'll be sure to hit you up before too long!
